In order to create a brighter future for students while supporting the economic and understanding of cultural development of the region, it is necessary to provide opportunities and guide youth to increase the social value including raising awareness and introducing the importance of entrepreneurial spirits. Thus, the main goal of this research paper is to examine institutional factors affecting Academic Entrepreneurship (AE) in Turkey.
